    You didn't want the torrent method right? You wanted to know what a torrent is? If so.....


    Torrents are a revolutionary way of content distribution. That?s why the MPAA and RIAA are shaking in there booties suing old ladies and college kids, to put scare out there.


    You download a 25K or so file, a (.torrent file) and it connects to a
    Tracker = tracker keeps track of all the peers connected and tells which pieces of the files the other users have, it uses an algorithm to pick an order of downloading from other users, and some trackers have ones setup so if you upload more you download more, like the old mp3 FTP servers with a

    The ingenious thing about them is, if you have an incredible number of
    seeds = people who have 100% of the file done, there flagged as upload only so you now have a near unlimited source of download, if the seeds are large. That?s why if you download Linux distro they go so fast. The have tons of seeds 24/7.


    The use this method in the WOW (world of warcraft) patches that download so there servers don?t get jammed when there was a 75MB fix or upgrade.


    Popular clients for handling your .torrent files Azureus , utorrent and others.

    my favorite is Azureus.


    Hope that gives anyone a good enough primer to get started.
